The UK’s largest domestic laundry and leading specialist dry cleaner has again shown its commitment and support for Bournemouth Rugby Club.

Dorset-based Barker has renewed its sponsorship of the club for the 12th consecutive year.

Managing Director Matthew Barker, pictured left, said: “It is a real honour to be able to continue to support Bournemouth Rugby, a club that plays a key part in the local communities that it serves.

“It has a thriving Youth section, a very successful Senior Women’s team and a newly launched all female coaching squad in the Youth Girl’s section.

“We’re very much looking forward to seeing the Men’s Senior squad back in action in the Region One South Central league, as the new season starts.

Simon Carkeet, Chairman of Bournemouth Rugby, said: “Matthew Barker’s continued commitment to BRFC is hugely important and makes a real difference to the club and what we can achieve.

“We’re extremely grateful to have him on board.

“Matthew is also sponsoring one of our long-standing 1st XV players, Grant Hancox, the highest points scorer from last season.”
